Welcome to Growing Forever. Hello everyone. Thank you for tuning in to this edition of Wealth Talk. I want to tell you about my journey in terms of self-improvement and also haw that’s reflected on to my daughter which is really an amazing thing, an unexpected thing. Approximately four years ago, through my life is always tried to read self-improvement books, improve myself and never took it seriously until about four years ago where I decided you know about the television start getting books actually improve your life seriously. And I’ve been doing after four years and this channel you’re watching is approximately four years old as well.
As part of my journey, if you look at my channel you can see the affirmation videos which you know if you want to improve your life. I’ve been really blessed night I’ve been able to get together a microphone computer everything put these videos together and it really helped me, just reading the affirmations, creating the videos. It really sinks in. I also lost 75 pounds on the journey. a lot that’s not reading weight loss books but self confidence and self improvement type books. That’s really helped me to lose weight as well. My wedding ring it just kind of slides off, I need to have it resized. I’ve lost it grabbing for something, the other day I was grabbing for something in the car just flew off my hand so…
That’s one of the good side effects. I was 250 pounds now I am 175 and I have kept it off for probably a year which is great. Anyway my daughter’s 15 years old and she saw the improvement in our lives financially and emotionally especially being happy having wealth where you didn’t have to worry about who’s going to pay the electric bill next month. Having a nice cushion of the comfort comfort money cushion I call it. I get a flat tire how we pay for heat next month, that type of thing. And that makes for a happy family, having money which is great my daughter noticed this and sometimes you would be annoyed because I would take the affirmation videos you see on this channel, take the audio, put it on a USB stick and I would play it in the car.
I would pick her up and her friends would be playing these affirmations and friends thought I was loopy because you know, why is your father listening to himself talk. With these funny money phrases these these self-improvement phrases. But they understand I have a YouTube channel and I told him about it they were pretty excited but my daughter sees the improvement in our lives over the last four years simply by reading books and listening to affirmations.
Which is doesn’t cost anything to watch YouTube, books are cheap on Amazon. Used books especially. So out of the blue my daughter comes to me and she says “daddy and I read some of your money books.” I was so happy, I was thrilled I never said you should read these books I never said you know, you should do this for self-improvement she said daddy can I read some of your money books. so that was a few days ago and I started her off with this book. I started her at this because it’s very Thin. She has a book mark here reading “give and expect to receive” the center of the book. I am at a crossroads, she’s going to be finished with this book very quickly. I’m sure and I decided to give her next.
Deciding what kind of book to have her read next. I thought of giving her another Catherine Ponder book, “The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity” but this is this is a whopper, this is 430 pages. it’s a much heavier reading. This one this is like the introduction of the summary of this. I don’t want to lay this one her, hoping you could suggest something. Now she has a background, a finance background right now in the school she’s attending they actually have a finance class, consumer finance class based on Dave Ramsey’s teachings. Davey Ramsey’s ok, you know saving money.
I have listened to a few of his episodes on the radio and people will scream “I’m debt free” and I know one person was on there, he said, Dave said, how did you do it? He said I havent take my wife out for a meal in three years. I’m not into that sparse living, living in lack and limitation I know you’re paying your bills off it seems like a meager existence to count your pennies like that. I used to be like that and I have gotten away from that. My life is better in my family finances are much better. It’s seems if you let money flow out of you and your generous others, it comes right back. I will make another video about that it has some experiences in my life with that. Any way back to my daughter and she has a Dave Ramsey background I’ve watched episodes of Susie Ormon when Suze Orman was on CNBC I know she does they just got rid of after 10 years not sure what happened but it was a good background.
Just general financing of student loans, car loans, 401k type of thing but I want her to go, daughter to go much deeper than that. I don’t want to go that route so I need your help suggesting books for her to read. I got several hundred some of them are heavy as I started with this little guy. 60 pages, and they type is really small.
Leave a comment, I would love to hear what kind of book. Self confidence, self improvement, doesn’t have to be about money what kind of book a 15 year old girl should read who wants to improve her life. Emotionally, financially as well, and please leave a comment and I’m really excited. My daughter sees in my bedroom I have books sitting next to my nightstand, and now she has this book just sitting next to her nightstand in her bedroom. And she reads it before falling asleep which is good because they say reading right at bedtime will help it sink in. So children are very smart and they will emulate what you do for better or for worse. And I’m glad what I’m doing with this channel living well, and the weight loss my daughter lost weight as well I didn’t tell her lose weight she’s lost it. children are funny how the emulate the parents, they emulate adults. So once again leave a comment what kind of books. Nonfiction of course, no Hunger Games or Harry Potter please.
okay I think that is everything I really want to thank you for supporting my channel watching this channel. One other thing there are no links to in the description for these books. I am not here to make money off you. I know some youtubers, I know some youtubers have a link in the description Amazon they get money out of that if you want to search for Catherine Ponder books just go to Amazon or Ebay. Share in this if you want to because like I said for the third time saying this – children will do what the adults do and it’s such an amazing my daughter came to me and wanted to read Catherine Ponder. Alright I think that is everything. Thanks again I appreciate your support, have a great day.
